drank Hojicha by Zen Tea
392 tasting notes

this is lovely. i’ve hardly had a moment to stop and i don’t imagine that will change much…. a light green nutty cup of ‘stop and take a breath’…. not a traditional green. definitely not a chinese green…. i taste marine air and have a sense of salt though not the taste. a savoury element, but when i try to pin it down it skitters away.

striking.

i foresee a long and happy friendship. =0)

I used to drink a lot of Hojicha, & I still enjoy a cup from time to time. :)

I like hojicha. Nice and low in caffeine too, so good at night. I had a caramel hojicha once, which was nice.

JustJames

sounds lovely… sadly i would not be able to taste it. =0(

It merely added a subtle sweetness with a little toasty notes. But I know you have trouble with caramel. :(

JustJames

such a random glitch 80\ HOWEVER i found one i can taste: chocolate caramel by simpson and vail- their tea is so strongly scented that it seems like i taste it even though i know i was smelling it.

Yes, I just sent out what I had left of this to someone who’s not crazy about green tea. The fact that it has that nutty feel to it, with no gassy notes makes it perfect for the non green tea lovers I find.
